Chaitra Navratri Day 7 - Worship Maa Kaalratri

Appease the Goddess of good deeds - Maa Kaalratri! The seventh incarnation of Maa Durga is Kaalratri. She is the destroyer of the evil and protector of the innocent. Read here to know about the most violent yet benevolent deity and how to appease her on Seventh day of Chaitra Navratri.



Maa Kaalratri - Preserver of the Good and Slayer of the Evil


The seventh and the most violent and ferocious swaroop of Goddess Paarvati is Maa Kaalratri. Her name coalesces words KAAL meaning “time or death” and RATRI meaning “the night”, thus it signifies that the Goddess is the slayer of the darkness. It is believed that she removed her golden skin to destroy the two demons, Shumbha and Nishumbha, after killing Rakhtbeej. She is also known by the name of Goddess Shubhankari to bless her devotees and end their fear of the bad.


In ancient Hindu scriptures, her heavenly appearance is depicted as that of the darkest of nights with unkempt bountiful hair and she wears a necklace that shines like the moon. She sits in an upright position astriding a donkey (Gadarbh) and emits fire while breathing. She has four hands - the left two hands holds a scimitar (Katar) and thorn like Cleaver (Vajra) to eradicate the evil and bad, while her right hands are in Abhaya and Varada Mudras to bless the pure and good. Such is the glory of her name that just chanting it is enough to make the evil forces disappear.

Rules for Worshipping Maa Kaalratri


Goddess Kaalratri is worshipped on Seventh day of Navratri and is worshipped in two ways - Navratri Puja (followed generally on all days of Navratri) and Tantra Puja. The rules that are to be followed during Tantra Puja are as follows:

  • Just like previous days in Navratri, general Puja for Maa Kaalratri is the same. However, Tantra Puja for the Goddess must be done under specific instructions from expert scholars.
  • The best time for performing Puja to worship the Goddess is during midnight.
  • Tantra Puja is very effective for destroying the evil and bad.
  • Red and Black colored things are of prime importance during Puja of Maa Kaalratri.

Maa Kaalratri Mantra


Ekveni Japakarnapura Nagna Kharastitha |
Lamboshthi Karnikakarni Tailabhyakta Sharirani ||

“She is bare skinned, has disheveled bountiful hair, adorns ornaments on her neck and legs like lightning, complexion is as black as the darkest of nights, breathes fire, has blood shot eyes demanding blood of the evil, heavenly body, rides on a donkey, and is violent and ferocious looking.” This Mantra removes all obstacles and hurdles from a person’s life as well as ends their fears and sufferings.

Astrological Significance of Chaitra Navratri Day 7


Seventh day of Chaitra Navratri is a golden opportunity for Yogis and Sadhaks to pay their reverence to Goddess Kaalratri. They repent their sins and try to attain Sahasrara Chakra (Crown Chakra) for gaining Siddhis and Niddhis, specially knowledge, power and wealth. Other than this, Maa Kaalratri also governs and guides Planet Saturn. So, by worshipping her on Navratri Day 7, wards off all the ill-effects of Saturn on your life.

Get rid of all your pain and sufferings this Navratri with Shani Yantra

Thus, in spite of her ferocious appearance against demons and evil beings, Goddess Kaalratri is very generous to her devotees. She blesses them and protects them from any kind of demonic influence, thus offering a prospering and wonderful future.

AstroSage wishes you all a very happy Chaitra Navratri and sincerely hope that Goddess Kaalratri showers her divine blessings upon you and your loved ones.
